“The motive of the Higher Self is always love and service.” ~Joan Borysenko, Pocketful of Miracles

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle to serve. You don’t have to know Einstein’s ‘Theory of Relativity’ to serve. You don’t have to know the Second Theory of Thermal Dynamics in Physics to serve… You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”  ~Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. from his sermon ‘The Drum Major Instinct’ [source]

Give with joy

“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.” ~Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“The greatest joy comes from giving and serving. That’s much better than the discomfort and distress of focusing exclusively on yourself and what’s in it for you. When you make the shift to supporting others in your life, without expecting anything in return, you’ll think less about what you want and find comfort and joy in the act of giving and serving. This giving, loving, serving person is the real you.” ~Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
